The cross revolution

As you most likely already know, we love goals. We especially love cycling goals. Last year, was the year of the cross revolution. The cross bike that is. We went from desperately trying to sneak in hours in the forest to easily cranking them out on our cross bikes. We both destroyed our 2014 climbing goal of 365,000 ft. 500,000 ft this year?

We also destroyed our sunrise watching goals.

This is all because of the Dimple Commute™. This is probably the best commute in the Corvallis area (second only to the McDimple Commute™). It may not be the most direct route, but it is the most beautiful. It requires a good backpack, a cross bike and a bit of preparation. We spend our Sunday prepping breakfast burritos, muffins, yogurt snacks and lunch for the entire week. It is certainly worth it.
